A new collection has just been released called the “Ride to Gold”. UK instructors Ben Alldis & Leanne Hainsby teamed up with World and Olympic cycling champions Jason & Laura Kenny to bring this special collaboration together.
Laura Kenny has won 4 olympic gold medals in track cycling, taking the win in both the team pursuit and the omnium during both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, making her the the most successful female track cyclist in Olympic history, as well as Great Britain’s most successful Olympic female competitor in any sport. She has also won seven World Championship, a record twelve European Championship and one Commonwealth Games titles, as part of a total of 29 medals. Jason Kenny has won 6 olympic gold medals in track cycling, during the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Olympics, making him the joint holder of the highest number of Olympic Golds for a British athlete.
The first announcement for this series came from Ben’s instagram post
